This post is for all those readers of the blog who consulted me about how to modify the size of the hexagon jacket. We know that if we add more rounds, we can increase the size of the hexagons, but there comes a point where we achieve the desired body size, but the sleeves are too wide , or vice versa, we have the desired width of the sleeves but the jacket is too narrow.

I will show you how, by changing 1 or 3 sides of the hexagon, we can change the shape of the jacket.

Here is the original jacket, without any modification:

Suppose that we want to modify the length of the jacket, the length of the sleeves, the width of the back or front leaving the rest unchanged. To do this you just have to modify one side of the jacket.

Graphically you will find it more clear:

Here you can see the different options. Depending on how you fold the hexagon will be the part of the jacket that you modify:

In the case that want to modify several sides at once, you just have to continue crocheting in 3 of the 6 sides of the hexagon.

This way you can modify the front, back and length at the same time, or the shoulders and sleeves. It depends on how you fold the hexagon to form the jacket.

Graphically:

I hope you find this post clear and useful to crochet the jacket in all the sizes that you want.

Crochet hexagon jacket/Crochet hexagon sweater

In this new post I want to bring you another version of the baby hexagon jacket. This version has no holes, wich makes it warmer and allows other colour combinations.

This pattern, as the other version, is made with two hexagons that folded in half become the two halves of the jacket. Once the two halves are seamed together, we add  the collar and cuffs.

This pattern can be found on the web in several languages ​​as “saquito hexagonal o en hexágono”, “chompita hexagonal”, “chompa en hexágono”, “casaquinho hexágonos”, “hexagon jacket” or “hexagon sweater”. This version is inspired in the Sue’s Hexagon Baby Sweater from Cozy’s Corner.

As most of the post of the blog, this is an ideal project for beginners and those who don’t like the idea of crocheting sleeves separately.

To increase the size of the jacket make bigger hexagons by adding rows.

Here is the PATTERN:

Crochet hexagon jacket / Crochet hexagon sweater

This time I want to bring you this free crochet pattern of the hexagon jacket that I made for my daughter Micaela who will be born in January of next year.

This jacket is made with two hexagons that folded in half become the two halves of the jacket.

Once the two halves are seamed together, we add  the collar and cuffs.

This pattern can be found on the web in several languages ​​as “saquito hexagonal o en hexágono”, “chompita hexagonal”, “chompa en hexágono”, “casaquinho hexágonos”, “hexagon jacket” or “hexagon sweater”. As you can see, this is a very popular pattern that allows you a lot of color combinations. 

It is an ideal project for beginners  and those who don’t like the idea of crocheting sleeves separately.

To increase the size of the jacket make bigger hexagons by adding rows.
